If you both love adventures and the great outdoors, then plan a private wedding ceremony somewhere adventurous. A great elopement idea is exchanging vows in mother nature’s beauty. Having an intimate wedding for just the two of you also does not limit you to where you can elope in the world. We have featured hundreds of elopements, and we put together the best places to elope, so you can get a better idea of where you two would love to say “I do”.

If you’re planning where to elope, a great idea is to plan your elopement and honeymoon at the same location! Our list of honeymoon destinations is a great indicator of how your ideal honeymoon destination could easily be where you both have your wedding ceremony as well. We love it when couples have the idea to mix the two together because they can enjoy their wedding day and seamlessly jump into their honeymoon together minutes later. How relaxing does that sound? 

Go on an Adventure Together

A elopement idea we love is taking the time to really enjoy the moment with each other and explore the world around you. Put on your hiking boots and hike together, explore the streets of a town you have never been, or cuddle under a blanket as you watch the snow fall. Get inspired with our different resources and learn what you need to bring on your wedding hike or how to style a beautiful boho elopement ceremony together. Since you’re planning an elopement, you have more creative freedom to do whatever you both want on that day. 

Incorporate Your Favorite Wedding Traditions During Your Elopement

Just because you decide to elope doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy wedding traditions. We love when couples incorporate wedding traditions such as the first dance and cake cutting ceremony on their elopement day. An elopement can be just like a traditional wedding without the additional tables, decisions, expenses, and stress. So if you want to blast your favorite song on your cellphone while you share your first dance together, then go for it!

Include Close Family and Friends

A lot of people think when a couple elopes, it is just the two of them. Elopements, however, can be whatever you both want it to be. So if you want your closest friends and family to join in the fun as you get married somewhere adventures, then go for it! If you want to keep your wedding ceremony private, then you can always announce your elopement in a fun way to your loved ones! If you want to have the best of both worlds, then maybe consider having a live stream wedding ceremony at your favorite location!
